Tithe To Time | #Poetry #Poems #Prose #Mindset

My heartbeats seethe voraciously
out of my caved–in chest
bleeding raven verses
that sullenly singe my soul,
dragging it slavishly
like a shackled undead corpse,
– a veritable mannequin of the macabre –
through Dante’s 9 Circles of Hell,
driving a sundering spear of sorrow
right through frozen clock
splicing the moment malevolently;
purging emotions, as a tithe to time,
fractured irrevocably, shuddering seismically,
eviscerated morbidly and cleansed cataclysmically,
for every breath wasted.
